Sadness and stress
I learned that both thoughts of sadness are linked to current stressors. I became aware and let the thoughts pass with each breath.

Managing thoughts
I learned to let them come, let them go. Easier said then done but becoming aware of that makes it a bit easier.

Managing your thoughts
While meditating I did just that. Let the thoughts float away like clouds. Breathing in and breath out with positive affirmations instead.

Riding ...
I was actually a blank slate until she said the word “cloud” and I immediately was riding on top of a big, white fluffy one floating high in the sky. I was able to see many other ones around me. It felt like I knew they all had names but I was able to Not focus on them and just let them be. I could see the horizon in all directions (because I observed all the clouds had flat tops) and I did notice the sun was shining. No birds, no planes, no sounds. Everything was serene and calm with just enough breeze to keep us moving slowly across the sky... I guess I also noticed she had a lovely voice with a very pleasant accent towards the end. Very relaxing!! And I feel recharged 😎☮️

I learned that it’s normal to have thoughts good or bad. It’s ok to acknowledge these bad thoughts like clouds passing and to let them go.

They Are Just Thoughts
Thoughts are like clouds. They come and they go. But we choose to hold on to these thoughts. We need to let them go.

I am stronger than my thoughts, they are not fact. I can control my thoughts. They are just passing through. My brain is stronger than my feelings.

My thoughts are not me
Dont live by them, disregarding them if they dont mean anything or are not real.

If I'm not...
Paying attention to the thoughts passing trough my mind, and even acting upon them on occasion, WHY HAVE THEM?!? Don't these thoughts make me who I am?!?

Do not dwell
There is no need to think a thought is important and to dwell. They’re just thoughts.

be aware of your thoughts
thoughts come and go, you are not your thoughts, they come and go, managing anxiety is knowing not to cling on your thoughts

Thoughts/Stress
I learned that to eliminate some thoughts from our mind, first we have to acknowledge them.

Pushing Away
I noticed that pushing away a thought or expecting it to leave makes the thought stronger and more persistent. These thoughts require attention.

Day 11
I overthink 110% of the time and even justify that it helps me work through my thoughts. Sitting on them, holding them, processing them. It doesn’t help. What’s helped me is acknowledging that I might have a bad or good one. Identifying that whatever I’m worried of will pass. It always does. I’m always worried of the what if and how will I handle this.. but I always handle it in some way.

I am not my thoughts
This meditation helped me realise that I was accepting thoughts as facts without even being aware of it, and letting it negatively affect my mood. I was able to see the thoughts for what they are, just thoughts.

Over-thinking
Our thoughts are like clouds. They come and go. They float on by. All we need to do is be aware that these are just thoughts in our mind. No need to dwell over them, or think too much that we create our own unpleasant stories from these unpleasant thoughts. They’re simply just thoughts.

I listened and it was like everything was gone but it was sad after I had to come back to reality

Clouds
Just like clouds drift by, my thoughts drift by, clearing the way for new thoughts. Actually, I feel it is very important to pay attention to my thoughts because depressing thoughts can sabotage my day before it has even begun. Often I find myself thinking I'm really tired when I first get out of bed and then I realize, no I'm not, I'm just waking up. Or dreading my workday and it hasn't even begun. Then looking back at the end of my workday and thinking it was a really nice day. So I find it is really important to think good thoughts and create my joy from within.

Thoughts
I love comparing thoughts to clouds! Most are beautiful, fluffy wisps that drift by! Some clouds are denser, but they still drift by! And the really bothersome, dense storm clouds which occasionally burst, still float away! Nothing is permanent! Let it go...

Reminders
I was reminded that all of my anxious thoughts and my happy thoughts and my neutral thoughts all carry the same weight. They are all just thoughts. They aren’t me.

Simple
I am aware of my awareness of others durning the day. I don’t know how to deal with certain people but meditating helps me to not give a damn.

Today I had to tell my stepson that his father has moved out all his stuff and he won’t be back to his home for the last 4 years. My heart is breaking because there is nothing I can do and no matter how much I love him I cannot keep him safe and happy. I feel I have let him down - parents are supposed to protect their kids - not let them be in pain. I cannot stop crying.

Stresses
With this meditation it said to name three things I appreciate about myself but, I could not think of anything which caused me to be stressed and anxious. Thinking, maybe I don’t have any good qualities.

Not paying attention
I broke up with my bf two days ago... I’m just so stupid. This feeling is killing me just by knowing that I won’t talk or see him anymore is so sad

Stay mindful
Your mind will constantly throw thoughts at you. Simply learn how to notice them and move on from them whether they be about an incident in the past or a worry for the future they are just thoughts and it’s a matter of how you react to them.

Keep up the state
Now if I only could manage to be mindful of the state this meditation put me into through my busy day.

I felt calmer
I felt that I could focus on my breath and felt as though I was able to calm my mind. I feel the only tension I currently notice is my my. It seems as if my breathing still feels shallow and that I have to fully work my chest to get a deeper breath. But my body and mind few a lot calmer than it was feeling. I am not my thought, and my thoughts are not me. My thoughts are just thoughts and they come and go like clouds

Rise and pass. A natural flow if I allow them the freedom to do just that. 🎈🎈🎈

Nitima, again perfect for today! I am observer of my thoughts and stories, also a total being! Perhaps a separate observer exists for each story! Thanks.
